Great! Sounds like you know what you want. Good luck on the adventure. It can be fun depending on your definition of fun.parricide wrote: ↑Sat Sep 21, 2019 11:41 pmto be honest it is not just the idea of creating plugins that is motivating me, i just think i will enjoy coding in general. i have used other visual programming environments as well as audio ones to create things like games and apps just for fun and i have really enjoyed it, even the debugging processesJCJR wrote: ↑Sat Sep 21, 2019 10:52 am... And there is nothing wrong with long paths if you have the motivation to stay on the path. Just that is a different goal than "learn about audio processing."
I mean, just as a ferinstance, eventually you will spend days and weeks learning about various tricks about window z order and graphic updating. Days and weeks learning about various tricks of hiearchical menus, both menu bars and popup menus. Days and weeks on buttons, sliders and knobs. Days and weeks on freakin file access, opening, closing, copying, erasing, renaming, reading and writing frikkin files.
That is all great to know but it isn't directly related to sound or music. Thats all I'm sayin.
Not trying to be Debbie Downer scaring you away from a long path. I'm just pointing out that it is a long path.
Personally I am chauvinistic about C/C++ dialect. I don't have anything against other dialects but like C good enough. I personally probably would not consider a "simplified" audio environment such as jsfx of plug'n'script unless it happened to read "fairly similar" to C syntax.
Just wanted to point out the "significant hidden costs" of doing it without the training wheels. Of course there are significant benefits as well.
